Kent Primary Students Learn the Magic of Respect and Empathy
For Kent Primary School students, magic was in the air at a recent character-building assembly focused on taking pride in their actions and their character. Through the illusion and wonders of a guest magician sponsored by the school’s Parent Teacher Organization, the magic assembly, designed to promote respect, responsibility, independence, determination and empathy, had students smiling, laughing, thinking, and celebrating their own character strengths.
Using different magic tricks and optical illusions, magician Robert McEntee created a positive and fun environment in which students learned that their behaviors are connected to results and that there is an important distinction between laughing with – but never at – someone.
